We have been to this hotel in October for a number of years. However this is the first time in the summer. Unfortunately we were disappointed as there was a wedding on Saturday.

Single room booked late for a wedding reception. Wonderful view across the Solent, comfortable bed, tea and coffee facilities, bath and shower.

Overlooked South Parade Pier and watched many of the ships coming in and leaving...

We have been visiting this hotel for many years and today's carvery was excellent. The staff go out of their way to make the meal a very enjoyable experience. The choice and quality of the meat was very good and vegetables cooked and presented to a high standard. Thank you to the very professional staff and management team.

We stayed here Monday to Friday in May 2017 and it was a great break. We had a sea view room on the front of the hotel - room 208 and it was clean and tidy if a little tired but the room was massive and it is a Victorian Hotel so don't expect cutting edge design. These days with...
